X-Men Days of Future Past Trailer (Bryan Singer)

Embedded below is the trailer for X-Men Days of Future Past. Somewhat based on the classic Chris Claremont X-Men storyline, the movie blends elements of Bryan Singer’s X-Men films and the more recent X-Men First Class. Singer is back in the director’s chair X-Men Days of Future Past and is joined by actors from all the previous films. Hugh Jackman (Wolverine), Patrick Stewart (Professor X), Ian McKellen (Magneto), Halle Berry (Storm), Jennifer Lawrence (Mystique), James McAvoy (young Professor X), and Michael Fassbender (young Magneto) are just some of the actors in the star-studded cast.

If you’re not familiar with the original story, it involves time travel, giant mutant-hunting robots, alternate futures, and timeline manipulation. It sounds confusing, but it boils down to a future X-Man going back into the past in order to avoid a horrific future. While the basic premise of the movie is the same, longtime X-Men fans will be able to spot several differences in the trailer alone. Character roles, team composition, and various interactions are some obvious, but understandable, differences. Naturally, any excuse to give Hugh Jackman more screen time is a good thing for attracting mainstream viewers. While comic-book fanboys will likely take umbrage to the Hollywood-influenced rewrites, general moviegoers aren’t likely to complain (or notice).

My excellent friend and fellow comics nerd Paul Semel is approaching the movie with caution. He loathed X-Men First Class and is afraid that X-Men Days of Future Past will have many of the elements he hated about that movie. I’m way more optimistic than he is on X-Men Days of Future Past’s potential. The source material (though altered) is great, the director is solid, and the cast is outstanding. The danger is that multiple time jumps and a large cast of characters will add up to a Giant-Sized X-Men mess, but I have faith in Bryan Singer.

How about you guys and gals? What do you think of the X-Men Days of Future Past trailer? Are you more excited for or afraid of the movie?

  1. I really enjoyed X-Men First Class, so im hopeful for this movie. Especially if that guy with the dreads is supposed to be Bishop

  2. Is Iceman in this thing? That is what I am going to base my decision whether to see this movie or not on.


      1. Good= Iceman is in the movie.
        Bad= He’s still being played by Shawn F’n Ashmore.

        I just hope he doesn’t keep acting like a pussy. He’s an Omega-level mutant, damnit! He should start acting like one.


      2. Yeah, I do. I’ll have to check out my favorite online store to see if they have the TP issues. I’ve been really behind in my graphic novel quota. I think the Ultimates (Ultimate Comics) line screwed me up so bad that I almost swore off all Marvel comics.


  3. With the time travel and alternate futures, do you think we may finally get to see a Sentinel?

    1. Oh, there be Sentinels in this movie. Bolivar Trask, creator of the Sentinels, is in Days of Future Past, being played by the outstanding Peter Dinklage.

  4. Im already going to hate the altered parts of the story that the trailer showed. I’m being cautios with this one. Also still no gambit huh
